There is a song called roundabout on Fragile, guess you are referring to that or abusing us, one of the two.

10/10

yes... i think it is the best band in the world, along with king crimson... steve howe, chris squire, rick wakeman and bill brufford are virtuosos and real musicians, TMV are just amateurs if you put them with this music gods... anyway, i think tmv fucking rocks, and they're really good, in fact it's the only band from the last 25 years that i listen to, i think tmv is kinda a "prog rock revival" at their very own particular way. Hope mars volta get better musically speaking.

long live yes, king crimson, van der graaf generator, gentle giant, elp, jethro tull, pink floyd! and all true prog rockers

i am finding myself listening to time and a word much more than say fragile or close to the edge. i must give appropriate credit to tales from topographic oceans and relayer as they are just as good as fragile or close to the edge.

on a side note, i do enjoy chris squire's solo album alot...

Yes may make TMV look like amateurs, but if you ask me(and i'll assume someone did) '70-'75 Genesis make Yes look like kids in an 8th grade talent show.

i agree. although i like tool and tmv, stuff like yes and king crimson are just for people who study music theory to cream their pants over.

Yes are fantastic musicians and stuff, but their output is way too
inconsistent.

"Relayer" is my favorite Yes-album, the song-writing peaked, Patrick Moraz
replaced Wakeman briefly, and "Gates Of Delirium" is possibly the prog-rock
epic ever!

And, personally I think that "Fragile" is overrated. A decent record, but overrated.
